Finding a new engine...

Alright, well let's start by saying that I have read the 5th gen resource page.


I'm looking for a JDM H22a blacktop for my 01 type SH, and I'm looking to buy it from a place called JDM Engine Zone in Clifton, NJ. Does anyone have any experience buying from them?

Re: Finding a new engine...

Well, there place seems to be a hit and miss. I bought a motor from jdm engine depot in Kearny NJ, and so far the motor is good.

Re: Finding a new engine...

Actually from my research I found pretty much the opposite. I've heard JDM Engine Depot is REALLY hit or miss, but nothing I found on JDM Engine Zone has anything bad about them. Their eBay reviews for the last year are like 400 positive and like 2 negative, and the negatives are about dumb stuff, not about their actual product.

However I am going to hand pick the engine out myself, but that still won't tell me if the engine is going to take a crap a year down the road.

Re: Finding a new engine...

I dunno, I called them and they said they didn't have my motor in stock, so I didn't bother to really get into it with him.
